Daoiri Farrell with support act Rum Doodle- Saturday 21 July 2018

‘Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade’

Dónal Lunny

A former electrician, who decided to change profession after seeing Christy Moore perform on Irish TV, Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí (pronounced ‘Derry’) Farrell is described by some of the biggest names in Irish folk music as one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years. Six months after releasing the album ‘True Born Irishman’ Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer, and Best Traditional Track and also performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall. In 2017 he has toured twice to the UK, Australia and Canada, and played major festivals in Ireland, the UK, Belgium, Denmark and more. In February 2018 he will tour with Transatlantic Sessions and has an official showcase at Folk Alliance in Kansas the same month.

‘An album that could yet prove to be one of the most significant Irish releases of recent years.’ **** Songlines

Rum Doodle

Rum Doodle are a folk roots acoustic duo from Leeds. Martin & BB Tim play mostly their own original songs with influences as broad as Christy Moore & The Dubliners to Bob Dylan & Neil Young. A lot of the material draws it's inspiration from these Islands we live in, be it about our wonderful heritage and different languages to growing up besides the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. But most important is the CRAIC.
